Need some inspiration for your Christmas shopping?

You’re in luck - queen of everything and everyone’s favourite talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, has announced her annual ‘Favourite Things’ list. And if there’s anyone’s taste we can trust, it’s got to be Oprah.

If you follow what Oprah gets up to regularly, you’ll know that she releases this list annually around the holidays season.


It’s filled with luxe recommendations spanning fashion, beauty, food, pets, homewares and more. This year, in celebration of the 'Favourite Things' list 25th anniversary, Oprah has teamed up with Amazon to release her biggest list ever.

We’ve rounded up some of our ten favourite picks here:

The Cats Pyjamas, Classic Luxe Pima, $143.42

Want something cosy to snuggle up in on Christmas Eve? These are, quite literally, the cat’s pyjamas. Incredibly soft with a silky feel and a classic pink piped style. Oprah says, "When I saw these cotton pyjamas, I knew what I was wearing to bed that night. They’re both crisp and silky, with an elastic drawstring waist, plus everybody’s favorite thing: pockets.”

GreenPan Reserve Healthy Ceramic Nonstick, Cookware Pots and Pans Set, 10 Piece, $598.70

As self-confessed average cooks, we’re happy to take Oprah’s advice on this one: "Fantastic colors (pick one) make these durable pots and pans anything but ho-ho-hum. With a special ceramic nonstick coating that requires little to no oil, they encourage health-conscious cooking, retain even heat, and won’t release unhealthy fumes."

K. Carrol Accessories, Kelsey Crossbody, $67.79

The issue with some bags is that they lose their shape after a while and can look sloppy or dishevelled. This Kelsey Crossbody was designed with inspo from a camera bag, so it is more structured than your typical bag. With three compartments and two large zippers, you’re able to organise your life inside this bag and fit in a lot more than you’d think! It comes in five different colours.

PurseN, Ultra Jewelry Organizer, $84.88

There is nothing - and we mean NOTHING - we detest more than untangling necklaces. With this organiser, there’s no need ever to relive that struggle. Oprah recommends it because “This hold-all is like giving her two gifts in one. With 10 clear removable pouches inside, it’s meant to store jewelry whether at home or travelling, and it doubles as an evening bag."

Bose Sleepbuds II, $299

Wireless earphones make it so much easier to listen to your favourite music or podcast while working out, cleaning, walking, but they're not always comfortable to sleep in. Well, these ones are. As Oprah puts it, you can have these in and “sleep with your ear smushed up against the pillow." The earbuds are specifically designed for comfort while sleeping and can play for 10 hours with a full charge.

"It’s never too early to introduce youngsters to inspiring people who have changed the world. These themed sets come with three board books highlighting the lives of visionaries such as Jane Goodall, Prince, Martin Luther King Jr., and my teacher and friend Maya Angelou." You can choose between multiple sets, including Black Voices, Earth Heroes, Inspiring Writers, Women in Science, and more - all of them highlighting trailblazers.

This classic, stylish set of bracelets comes in either silver or gold, made from either white gold plated brass or 14k yellow gold.

What Happened to You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing by Bruce D. Perry and Oprah Winfrey, $30.92

Um, yes, we want to read a book written by Oprah - to be honest, we don’t even need to know what it’s about. However, this is an incredible book written from conversations between Oprah and brain/trauma expert Bruce Perry. It delves into the emotional triggers between some of those behaviours or actions we do that leave us wondering, ‘why did I just do that?’. This powerful book is a New York Times bestseller.
